Cottage Cutz Bird Cage and Stand

Isn't this Bird cage and stand darling?  It takes me back to my childhood days when both my Mother and my Grandmother had birds as pets.  I just love all the detail on this die. 
 For the focal point I die cut the cage with black card stock and the birds with blue card stock.  I embossed white card stock with and embossing folder and punched a 3-1/4" x 5" piece of paper with a Martha Stewart Punch.  I then layer designer paper and black card stock under this and outlined it with pearls.
 I cut two of the tea time doilies and attached them to the corners.  The flower is Recollection and I cut two leaves from the Greenery die and attached them under the flower. 

NOTE:   Just want to mention that cutting the doilies with Cottage Cutz dies is a charm.   It cut perfectly.  What I liked about this doily as compared to other brands I have tried is that I just had to swipe my hand over the die after cutting and all those little pieces that cut went straight into the garbage.  I did not have to "pick" them out of  all the holes...lol!!!

These are the dies I used:

 Thanks so much for stopping by today and visiting The Scrapping Cottage Blog.  We appreciate it so very much.

Oh my gosh, you know sometimes I see these dies and I love them but then wonder how I would use them (I guess the creative curiosity just doesnt set in) and then I see something like this and LOVE it- this is a beautiful addition to any die set.
